Talking TV With Ryan And Ryan, Episode 94: Talking Amazon And 'Transparent' With Writer/Director Jill Soloway
It's Mo here, and in this podcast, I spend just under an hour talking to Jill Soloway, who created the "dark comedy" "Transparent." The half-hour pilot premiered on Amazon recently and it stars Jeffrey Tambor, Jay Duplass, Amy Landecker and Gaby Hoffmann.
Soloway, who previously worked on shows like "Six Feet Under" and "United States of Tara," talked about what it was like making a TV show with the online company and how it was different and similar from making a pilot with a broadcast or cable network. We also talked about the inspiration for the project and the research she did on the characters, and of course there was a digression about "Girls."
